Feral Queer Camp

Explore Midsumma with a gaggle of queer thinkers and makers

** Applications have now closed for this event **

Let’s go feral! 
(Feral: ‘in a wild state, especially after escape from captivity or domestication’) 
Be part of a new feral cohort who will consider: how we learn (from each other) about what makes performance queer; how we talk about queer performance; how we make performance; and, above all, how we might develop a network of queer thinkers.
Facilitated by a gaggle of feral queer academics assembled by camp captains Alyson Campbell and Steve Farrier, this is open to anyone in the community – enthusiasts, developing artists, practitioners: people who have not (yet) had access to, or have been let down by, or have chosen not to enter into, Higher Education but are hungry to encounter a utopian queer curriculum largely of their own devising. 

In 2021, Alyson and Steve will lead a hybrid digital/face to face version of the Feral Queer Camp, hosting activities such as workshops, artist conversations, lectures and group discussions stemming from the performances in Midsumma Festival. FQC will include some COVID-safe in-person gatherings, excursions and theatre trips, as well as online events.
Everyone 18+ is welcome to apply, regardless of experience and... you are queer enough!

Applications close COB 29 March.
